Load Generator Management dialog box
This topic describes how to manage the different load generators types that are available to use in your performance test. For details on the load generator types, see About load generators.
In LoadRunner Enterprise, click Open the navigation toolbar and select Test Management (under Testing).
Select a performance test in the test management tree and click Edit Test.
In the Performance Test Designer window, click Groups and Workload.
On the Groups pane toolbar, click More > LG Management.
Note: To select multiple load generators, click a row and drag the mouse to highlight the load generators you want to select. To select all load generators in the column, select the check box next to the Name column heading, or press CTRL + A.
User interface elements are described below:
Copy/Paste load generator settings. Enables you to copy load generator properties from the selected load generator, and paste them to other load generators.
|Load Generator Type tab|
Select the load generators for which you want to enable remote desktop sessions or enable terminal services, and click Enable RDP or Enable Terminal Services. For details, see RDP settings and Terminal Services settings
Note: Properties for specific load generator types are defined by the LoadRunner Enterprise administrator, and are read-only.
Enables you to define properties for automatch load generators. Properties include a location, and other host attributes. At runtime, a specific load generator in the host pool of the project matching these properties is assigned to the Vuser group.
When you select one or more automatch load generators, all the load generator details are displayed in the right pane.
Enables you to add or remove elastic cloud load generators.
For more on elastic cloud load generators, see Provision elastic cloud load generators.
Enables you to add additional elastic Dockerized load generators. To do so, click Add LGs to create more Dockerized load generators. Enter the number of load generators in the adjacent box, and click Add.
Name. By default, Dockerized load generators are named DOCKER1, DOCKER2, and so on. For task details, see Assign elastic hosts to a test.
For more on elastic Dockerized load generators, see Configure elastic Dockerized hosts.
To support GUI testing, you can run Vusers in an interactive RDP session. Select this option to enable remote desktop sessions for the selected Specific, Automatch, or Elastic Cloud load generator types. For task details, see Run Vusers in an interactive RDP session.
|Color depth and Resolution||Select the required color depth and resolution to be used to create the RDP session on the hosts running the script (the graphic card of the hosts running the script will determine the default color depth and resolution if it does not support the selected one).|
|Terminal Services settings|
Enables you to configure terminal services sessions for the selected Specific, Automatch, or Elastic Cloud load generator types. For task details, see Configure terminal sessions.
|No. of Terminal Services to open on Load Generator||
Enter the number of terminals in your performance test.
Note: You must open a terminal session for each terminal on which you want to run Vusers during the performance test.
|Max. number of Vusers to run in a Terminal Service||
Enter the maximum number of Vusers that you want to run in a terminal session.
Note: The maximum number of Vusers depends on the Vuser type used in the script. For GUI Vusers, the maximum is one Vuser for each terminal session.
|Create new session||
Enables the Controller to launch terminal sessions automatically using the Remote Desktop Connection.
|Connect to existing session||
Enables a connection to an existing (open) terminal session. If you select this option, you must open a terminal client session manually for each terminal that you want to run Vusers on during the test run.
